The 1980-1981 school year signified the
first complete year of university status.
W hen in December of 1979, Governor Dick
Thornburg announced that Gannon Col-
lege had achieved university status, no one
realh seemed that excited, at least not the
student body. Since everyone was preparing
for finals week and the long-awaited
Christmas break, university status just
didn't seem important at the time.
Throughout the spring semester, howev-
er, small changes were noticed from signs
being changed to a university dance. Thus
« ith the start of the fall 1 980 term, univer-
mi> status was pretty much accepted and
forgotten. The change had occurred and
Gannon University had arrived.
But with the change to university status
has Gannon itself really changed? Obvious-
ly the name has changed and the school is
growing in leaps and bounds, but what
about those important little things that
have always made it worthwhile to say "I go
to Gannon." This year we at the Lance,
hope to present Gannon University and the
changes that have occurred over the past
>ear. More important, we would like to
show that even though the name has
changed, the "spirit" of Gannon still lives
on. Those things which made Gannon Col-
lege the small, friendly, personal school
have not changed, and we hope never will.

I \cn with university status, students must
still endure Erie weather dodging their way
across ''th Street. Crowds still come to the
\udi to cheer the Golden Knights and stu-
dents continue to express their spirit in the
form of Gannon T-shirts. The old house is
still on the corner of 6th and Peach looking
.is it has for years while the rundown and
usually forgotten Walker building took on a
brand new look and function. But most im-
portant, while the name has changed and
there are new faces, the people behind the
Gannon University name are still your typi-
cal Gannon people.
So continue as we attempt to recapture
the good times and the not so good times —
the problems, the improvements and the
trials and tribulations of Gannon Universi-
t> and the people who made the past
> ear special. We hope we have captured the
moments you would most like to remember.

Class of '81 — we made it!
Freshmen, sophomores, and juniors look
at graduating seniors with envy, looking
forward to the day they can officially put
Gannon behind them.
For three years students manage to get
through all the bummers college has to of-
fer by telling themselves that one day they
will be seniors preparing to get out.
And once they get to be seniors, they
begin to realize a little more as the years
wear on, that graduation may not be all
that it's cracked up to be.
Graduating means leaving Gannon, only
to go . . . where? For all the problems with
college life, real life is usually worse, and at
Working 9 to 5 at a real job isn't like
attending classes from 9:30 to 1:30. And
coming in late or not coming in at all is
much easier at school than it is in a real job.
Real jobs and real life: it's all so . . .
"real." That's probably what causes the
most apprehension among graduating sen-

The 8-Ball dance isn't real, the Scrounge

apprehensive about leaving. And maybe
that's why grad schools look better and

Student spotlight — Rona Nesbit
At the 1981 Commencement of Gannon
I niversity, it wasn't hard to see that Rona
Nesbit was a winner. At the ceremony, she
w as the recipient of the Gannon University
Medal of Honor, the Richard Beyer Memo-
rial Award, and the Joe Luckey Service
\ward. These honors, for character, lead-
ership, scholarship, outstanding intercolle-
giate athletic participation and outstanding
dedication and service to Gannon, were al-
most too much for Rona to hold in her
hands as she continued to return to the po-
dium to accept them. She walked away with
an armful of placques, a degree, and a
shower of applause. And Rona Nesbit de-
served them all.
In her four years at Gannon, Rona is
probably best known for her participation
on the Gannon Women's Basketball Team.
I n 1 980-8 1 , she broke the 2,000 mark for a
career point total, breaking all season re-
cords at Gannon. The 5'5" guard, one of the
team captains, set high standards for the
Gannon Basketball club, and has been
termed to have had the greatest career in
Lady Knight history.

Gannon — the year in review
Nineteen Eighty-Eightyone was a year
Gannon spent dealing with campus addi-
tions and improvements, institutional gov-
ernance changes, and faculty compensation
increases. But the really interesting news
- the stuff that got students talking —
dealt with Gannon not getting a concert
and trying to get rid of the "Zurn Hall
At the beginning of the school year the
Student Government Association (SGA)
allocated money for a concert — even
though the previous year's Livingston Tay-
lor concert attracted less than 500 people
and lost over $4,000. The organizers of the
Taylor concert said it gave the concert com-
mittee a foot in the door. Last September
the SGA surveyed students about a concert
and received these statistics:
- 96% thought a concert should be
part of the social calendar.
- 94% would support a concert at
- 95% would be willing to spend
$5.00 to see such a concert.
The SGA then went about trying to line
up a group for a spring concert. One group
cancelled, then another, then another. Fi-
nally Gannon settled on The Michael Stan-
ley Band — and this time Gannon can-
celled, reportedly because Stanley raised its
price. The SGA decided it wasn't worth it
and spent the money elsewhere.
Students were forced to look elsewhere
for entertainment — and some found it in
the story of the flasher in Zurn Hall.
One morning during October break,
while Dean Halit Kosar's secretary, Lois
Spcice, was working in her third floor of-
fice, a man came in, exposed himself and
masturbated, Speice said.
Speice called the switchboard for help

minutes later. The search was on but they
couldn't find him even though Security
Chief Mario Bagnoni said he had caught
the gu\ before and knew who he was.
Campus security was an on-going issue
throughout the year.
Other on-going news concerned Gannon
physical plant expansion in the downtown
area. Gannon spent alot of time — and
eventually money in some cases — trying to
decide which of a large number of down-
town Erie buildings for sale to buy.
Gannon actually bought two — the Ken-
ilworth apartment building on Sixth and
Chestnut Streets and the Presbyterian
Church on Fifth and Sassafras Streets. The
apartment building was bought for
$600,000 and will house non-freshman stu-
dents in September 1981.
Gannon officials planned to have the
church replace the chapel in the Old Main
Annex. They planned to study over the
summer what to use the adjoining educa-
tion center for. The church cost Gannon
Gannon officials also considered possible
uses of The Griswold Plaza Post office
which was vacated in the spring. And of
course Gannon was still thinking about
buying The Boston Store, which has been
vacant and for sale since June, 1979.
Gannon officials also spent time continu-
ing the transition from college to university
structure, after having been named a uni-
versity in December, 1979. The school year
began with a new college being formed
through the merger of three programs.
The Evening Session, Open University
and Continuing Education programs be-
came The Erie Metropolitan College of
Gannon University, with Dr. Richard Han-
sen as dean.
Other news concerned the faculty's re-
quest for a nine-percent cost-of-living in-
crease, increased fringe benefits and extra
compensation. This request was fully sup-
ported by the Deans Council, partially sup-
ported by the SGA and The Business Af-
fairs Committee and rejected by the Ad-
The faculty eventually got a seven per-
cent increase with other adjustments for the
1981-82 school year. It would cost Gannon

Faculty spotlight — Fr. Casimir Lubiak
w hen I r Casimir Lubiak started work
at the Gannon College Library, the budget
for the library was about S2.000. There
were onl> about 16.000 volumes. There
were five workers in the library and the
library was confined to the Old Main An-
nex where oil ices and the Student Activi-
ties Center is now.
That was 32 years ago. in 1949. Fr. Lu-
biak had graduated from Erie's Cathedral
Prep and Baltimore's St. Mary's Seminary
and got a Master of Science in Library Sci-
ence from Western Reserve University in
Cleveland. He began his work at Gannon
under Monsignor Lorei, the library's first
Lubiak became the second director in
1956, and has been in charge ever since,
until October 1 980 when he decided to step
V\ ith Lubiak as director the library has
grown into a full-fledged learning resource
center. The budget has grown to almost
$300,000. there are over 161,000 volumes
and 3 1 .000 bound periodicals. The salaries
for workers cost over $200,000. and the li-
brary moved into its new home — the Nash
Learning Resource Center — in 1973.
Fr. Lubiak was one of those who de-
signed the new LRC — with Lorei, a couple
consultants, faculty and "of course, the stu-
dents had some ideas", Lubiak said.
Lubiak said he wanted the LRC to have
an open-air concept. Since Gannon is
smack in the center of downtown Erie, all
Gannon buildings are surrounded by ce-
ment. With the new LRC "we wanted to
show a little green". Lubiak said.
The designers did that by leaving open
spaces b\ the sides of the building, below
street level. This allows people on the base-
ment level to see trees and plants instead of
concrete and cars.
A new library was supposed to be one of
the first new buildings for Gannon to add to
the campus, but classroom space came first
Lubiak said. Then when Gannon decided to
expand the library a moratoriam was de-
clared on federal grants to libraries and
other college buildings.
While Gannon waited, the price of the
complex went up $500,000 in 15 months,
Lubiak said. The old library "was a nice
room" but it "became so crowded we had to

store books in Zurn", he said.
Gannon finally got help from the federal
and state governments and the LRC was
built providing the academic community
w ith a television studio, dial access and oth-
er audio-visual facilities, study rooms and
seating for 1.000. Thirty years ago, Lubiak
said, the library didn't have any space for
Lubiak said he didn't think students to-
day were using the library materials more
than students of 30 years ago — as far as
taking them out. But he thought they were
using the facility itself more than the old
library was used.
As the university grows and goes into
more graduate research; the library will
have to expand — in physical size and in
budget. Lubiak said. The LRC was de-
signed in modules so that the open spaces
can be converted to usable space if neces-
sary, he said.
The basement floor is already crowded
with periodicals and instructors want more
facility studies, he said. "There's always
pressure from somebody to add some-
thing." and there may have to be an expan-
sion after ten years, he said.
Putting materials on microfilms is expen-
sive but cculd eliminate the need for expan-
sion. Gannon will have to use more micro-
film "even though students hate micro-
film", he said.
Lubiak never really expected Gannon to
grow this big. "I thought it would remain a
small college" he said, because Gannon was
originally founded for local students.
But he has seen a lot of growth in the past
30 years. So why retire now?
Lubiak said he thought it was time to
"inject a little new blood into the system".
He thinks his successor, Fr. Thomas Sny-
derwine will do a good job. "I'm sure he'll
have new visions maybe, plus youthful en-
thusiasm," he said. "And I think he'll be a
good director from what he has shown so
Lubiak won't be leaving the LRC
though. He has assumed the responsibility
for overseeing the library collections —
"something I've always liked, that's why I
choose that," he said.
So Lubiak will still be a significant part
of the facility he helped to build, and which
he is proud of. "We were able to meet the
standards of the accrediting association
since Monsignor Lorei and I were togeth-
er," he said.
"Everybody here is to provide services to
the students. That's the whole reason for
the existence of the building."
The most valuable part of the human
machine is ihe self-starter.

Registration used to be done on a primi-
tive basis. It used to be that students had to
line up in the Audi to get registration cards
verified, then stand in two or three lines for
each division to get admit cards for classes
in humanities, business, science or liberal
studies. And finally, they had to get in line
to turn the cards in for billing purposes.
But Gannon did away with all those lines
in 1980 when they started doing registra-
tion on the university's new computer. Now
there was just one big, slow moving line.
Actually Gannon got the new computer
in 1979 but it took awhile to fully utilize it.
The new computer was bought for instruc-
tional use — meaning students and teach-
ers could now use it for class and research
— and institutional use — administrators
in the registrars and business affairs office
could use it for registration and billing.
Students and teachers used to have to use
terminals in Russell Hall that were tied into
the Erie School District's computer at Tech
High School. Administrators as well didn't
have their own computers to use. Now there
are terminals in several offices in Old Main.
But in the minds of many students, who had
to stand in lines for hours to register and
later, pay bills there weren't enough termi-
nals. Once you got to the terminal, every-
thing was punched up with convenient
speed and accuracy. But two terminals for
over 3,000 students?

The 1980 prcsidental campaign began to
have it's effect on Gannon students and the
downtown area early last school year as
journalists, political watchers, etc. began
diverting from their prepared speeches long
enough to endorse a candidate or predict
the winners NBC newswoman Jessica Sa-
\ itch, for instance spoke at the Erie Hilton
and predicted the 1 980 race would put Ken-
nedy against Howard Baker. Oh well, can't
win em all Jessica.
Later on in the school year the primary
races began heating up and most candi-
dates put emphasis on the crucial Pennsyl-
vania primary. The only major candidates
to visit Erie though was Kennedy, who was
the only remaining Democratic challenger
to President Carter.
Kennedy's visit was preceded by his son's
who came to the Downtowner Holiday Inn
to meet with representatives of local college
newspapers, including the Gannon Knight.
But when the Senator came to town he
spoke at Mercyhurst College not Gannon.
In fact from the time the campaign offi-
cially started on Labor Day until Election
Day there wasn't much politicking at Gan-
non by major candidates.
Ronnie, Nancy, Walter, George and Ro-
salynn all made stops in Erie but none of
them set foot on Gannon land. Reagan

one and a half hours late to make a speech
on the steps of the Erie Courthouse to
throngs of shirt-sleeved people who filled
6th Street and adjacent properties all the
way from Peach to Sassafrass.
After a summer of making goofs such as
the one that implied President Carter was
courting the Ku Klux Klan, Reagan began
his campaign swing through the East with
advise from his aides not to shout from the
hip anymore. The result was two Erie
speeches — after his courthouse speech
Reagan spoke at the GE plant — that
sounded just like his Cleveland speech the
day before. In between attacks on Carter
Reagan talked about lowering taxes, in-
creasing defense spending and balancing
the federal budget.

Two weeks later, October, Rosalynn
Carter was in downtown Erie giving a
speech at the Hilton at 10th & Peach
Streets. The First Lady devoted much of
her speech to telling the audience that she
wanted to see her husband continue to be
president for another four years.
"We have had too many frivolous mo-
ments in this campaign. We are talking
about the future of our country. We must
have Jimmy Carter in the White House for
four more years" Mrs. Carter said.
But the only real reason she gave the lis-
teners for voting for Jimmy was that he
wouldn't make the same mistakes twice.
"He is a wiser man today than he was four
years ago. He has learned a lot." she said.
Mrs. Carter also stressed that the coun-
try needed her husband as President be-
cause he shared the same values as all
Americans, but all the polls taken in 1980
showed that most Americans were becom-
ing more conservative and traditional —

right in line with Ronald Reagan's personal
values and views of what America should
Reagan's views of moral men and women
striving for personal freedom from govern-
ment interference and collective freedom
from foreign countries seemed in tune with
the views that won Richard Nixon a land-
slide victory in 1972. Neither the silent ma-
jority of the 70's nor the moral majority of
the 80's depended on the support of young-
Reagan was so far ahead in the polls —
and ended up winning in November 4 by
over eight million votes — that he really
didn't need to court the youth vote. Speak-
ing across the street from Gannon's Old
Main, was about as close to the University
as Reagan could have been expected to get.
The 1980 election just wasn't one in
which young voters played an important
part — at least for the immediate time. The
only candidate who drew any interest
among the college set was Independent
John Anderson. And while Anderson didn't
come to Erie, his running mate Patrick Lu-
cey was the only major candidate to visit
Gannon. Lucey spoke in one of the Zurn
lecture halls five days before the election
denouncing Carter and Reagan as giving
the voters no real choice.
Anderson and Lucey surely must have
expected that they would lose the election,
but at least their winning about eight of the
vote showed that third party candidates
maybe taken more seriously in the future.
And as far as appealing to young voters,
the Independent ticket did even better, at
least at Gannon. A couple campus polls
showed Carter and Reagan neck and neck
with Anderson getting a healthy 20-25 per-

Five Gannon faculty members: Dr. Rob-
ert Allshousc. director of graduate social
studies. Dr. David Frew, director of the
master of business administration program,
Mar\ Ann Frew, director of the medical
assistant program. Dr. Walter Minot, di-
rector of the freshmen w riting program and
Dr. Dolores Sarafinski, associate professor

tion in 1980. Dr. Allshouse's book is titled
"Photographs for the Tsar" and came out
in September 1980. Dr. Frew and his wife
\lar\ Ann co-authored two textbooks titled
"Fundamentals of Mecial Assisting: Ad-
ministrative and Clinical" and "Medical
Office and Administrative Procedures,"
which were to come out in the fall of 1981.
Dr. Minot's textbook titled "Rheotric: The-
or\ and Practice for Composition" came
out in December 1980.

Prokudin-Gorskii. Prokudin-Gorskii was a
pioneer in color photography and traveled
through-out Russia taking pictures of ev-
eryday life. He left 2,000 glass negatives as
his legacy. These were brought to the Li-
brary of Congress by Mortimer Graves in
Allshouse began the year-long project of
compiling the photos after he noticed a ref-
erence to the collection in the American
Associationfor the Advancement of Slavic
Studies newsletter. "The main thrust of the
book is the pictures. They are historical
documents and represent pioneering in col-
or photography. To see color from this time
is truly amazing," he explained.
Articles about the book appeared in "The
New York Times", "Newsweek" and "The

Minot's text "Rhetoric: Theory and

lower level college writing courses. He has
tested the practices in the book at Gannon.
"Most freshmen textbooks suffer from a
lack of a sound theoretical basis; the theory
of communication is often inconsistent or
inaccurate or simply haphazard. My basic
theory goes back at least as far as Aristot-
le," Minot explained.
Minot said he learned a lot from his stu-
dents that he could not have picked up from
research along. He gives credit to a number

It was three years from the time he fin-

There were revisions and changes to be

Sarafinski's bibliography of Ben Jon-

The idea for the reference book evolved
from a dissertation she did in 1973 on Jon-
son's comedies. It was during research for
the dissertation that she discovered a need
for a good annontated bibliography of Jon-
son's works. "There was no tool like this
available to me," she said. This book is the
first annotated bibliography of Jonson's

Faculty spotlight — Ernie Wright
Many students will be missing a unique
business education in the years to come
after Professor Ernie Wright teaches his
last class this semester. Perhaps one of the
most colorful people to ever teach at Gan-
non, Ernie Wright is colorful because he
teaches business "the way it is," not always
by the book.
Maybe his greatest contribution to Gan-
non is the Department of Finance, which is
his own creation. It was "scientifically de-
signed" by Mr. Wright after he collected
the opinions of many prominent business-
men. This is why many business students
switch their major to finance after their
Mr. Wright's plans for the future are to
relax a little more by keeping up with his
business reading and writing critiques. Al-
though his teaching career is concluded, he

does promise "to give 'em a little hell

if he is asked.
Although many Gannonites call him
proud, he only replies: "My students make
me egotistical." This statement was backed
up by an Alumni Survey which listed Ernie
Wright as one of the facility members most
mentioned as contributing to the education
of Gannon graduates. This year also marks
the end of his twenty-eight years as advisor

Finals and graduation near the end of
studying for the year. And the end of study-
ing signifies the official start of the summer
social life season, with the first beer, or six-
pack, or case, being imbibed after the last
spring final has been put to rest.
The KDR fraternity, for example,
planned to inaugurate the opening da\ of
the season with a tricycle race in downtown
Erie from one bar to another, to another, to
another, ad nauseum.
The race was planned for Friday, the last
day o\' finals, but apparently the practice
sessions went a little too well. Most of the
planned entrants were done with finals on
Thursday — and after some exhibition bar-
hopping that night, they were in no condi-
tion to do anything on Friday.
The senior week events that weren't can-
celled included the annual wine and cheese
party for seniors in the Nash Library Gar-
dens, a social blast at Sullivan's, a bash at
the Masonic Temple and the graduation

The Gannon University Hockey team
scored big this year, winning the Western
Pennsylvania Inter-Collegiate Hockey
In their championship game, the Gannon
Hockey team gave Duquesne university its
second defeat in that school's last two years
of hockey. The Gannon team shut out Du-
quesne 4-0 in Pittsburgh's Civic Arena.
Gannon finished the season with a 1 3-6-2
record. Four of its losses were to the Univer-
sity of Pittsburgh and the U.S. Naval
Academy, schools with much larger hockey
programs than Gannons, according to Gan-
non Hockey coach Fred Lane.
"Chris Winter was outstanding in the
nets." Lane said. "Larry Collins got more
and more used to defense this year — be-
coming an outstanding player. Some games
he had as much as forty minutes of ice
time." Lane added.
The team success was not due to just one
or two players. Lane added, "At the begin-
ning of the year we brought a rope into the
rink, cut it into pieces, and gave each player
a piece. The idea was that the players
should depend on each other as if each was
hanging over a cliff and needed another
player to hold them up with that rope."
"The response from fans was great this
year," Lane said. "An average of 400 to
500 people came to the Gannon Home
games, and other teams began to fear play-
ing at the Gannon 'snake pit', Lane said.
At the beginning of the year Gannon
gave the Hockey team $2,000 to spend for
new equipment, and another $2,000 next
year will buy equipment and more ice time
for practice, Lane said.
The Gannon Hockey season lasts from
October 1 to March 25.

Gannon harriers . .
new sport off to "running" start
With a young, freshman team, Gannon
Cross Country began to mature during the
sports first season at Gannon which had
dropped cross country running in 1973.
The team won 3 of 6 dual meets it en-
tered, beating out Hiram College, and Mer-
cs hurst College twice. The team fared less
well in its invitational meets, having its best
showing in the Buffalo State Invitational
where it finished 9th among the 13 teams
The team of freshmen runners had no
previous experience at College cross coun-
try racing, where the races are twice as long
as high school cross country. Considering
that, the team did surprisingly well, Gan-
non athletic director Bud Elwell said.
"We're going to be even better next year,"
he added. Elwell named Craig Zgraggen
the team's number one runner.
The Cross Country season runs from
September 12 to October 31. The team is
coached by Ed Borsuk.

Despite some outstanding individual per-
formances, Gannon baseball did not have a
winning season, winning only 6 of 30
Individual highlights included junior
catcher Ric Gauriloff who batted .495, and
sophomore Tony Palermo who batted .414.
•\ freshman infielder, Tom Roward batted
The team this year included 2 seniors, 1
junior, 7 sophomores and 1 1 freshmen,
leaving hope for a stronger team to come.
The team plays a split season of 1 2 games
in the Fall and 18 in the Spring. One prob-
lem this year was that some good players in
the Fall did not return in the Spring, ac-
cording to athletic director Bud Elwell.

successful teams at the university and also
one o\' the popular with students, even
though Gannon doesn't have it own rink.
The Hocke) Club has to rent Glenwood ice
Gannon also doesn't have an outdoor
playing field and yet it has a soccer team.
\nd Gannons newest Cross-Country team
has to practice at Frontier Park, which is
owned b> the city.
So w hen a group of swimmers and aquat-
ic nuts at Gannon thought about starting a
Water Polo Club, it didn't let Gannon's
lack of a pool discourage them.
The Club formed in the Spring, 1981
planning to play a B-game schedule in the
fall using Tech High School's pool for the

Intramural sports at Gannon are often
followed more closely than the intercolle-
giate sports and it probably has something
to do with all the competitors being fellow
students just your average Joes.
In the fall semester, the following sports
were run: golf doubles was won by the Sigs
with Jeff I yons and Neil Stewart placing
first m the event. The Sigs also won putt-
putt as a team with Mike Dunford and Bri-
an McDonald. Tennis doubles went to the
Sigs also, even though the Studs had the
first-place team of John Lucci and Chris
McDermott. The Sigs claimed both the
team and individual championship in the
Football Field Meet, with Randy Jones
winning the title. The billiards title was won
by Bill Shugars of the APDs, individually.
The TKEs won foosball as a team with the
Studs placing the top team of Art Sardini
and Jeff Harayda.
Swimming was dominated by a commut-
er team named Y Diners, with Wehrle plac-
ing second. The Studs won the softball title
w hile the Sigs accumulated the most points
in that event. John Carrig and Fred Heintz
tied for title honors in cross country and
carried their team of Brothers and Others
to the team title. Bowling was won by Sig I
with the TKEs amassing the most points.
Free throws went to the Studs, while Mike
Schwartz of the APDs won the individual
free throw title. The Sigs won football and
got the most points in the event, too. Tom
Burik again won Ping-Pong singles, as he
did last year, and helped the Studs to the
team title. The final event of the fall was
wrestling, which was won by the Shieks.
Individual champions for wrestling includ-
ed Rick Eaton, Dave Gromacki, Phil
Kuntz. Bill Roth, Joe Rossman, Brothers
Paul. Mike and Chris Rowane each won
The spring semester started out with bas-
ketball, and the Studs 'A' team won the
crown with the Studs getting the most
points also. Volleyball was again won by
Studs 'A', and they again amassed the most
points in that event as they did last year.
Tom Burik teamed up with his brother,
Jim. to win Ping-Pong doubles and help the
Studs claim the team title also. Bill Tracey
won badminton for the third consecutive
year, and the TKEs won the event as a
team. Spring bowling was won by Pike Dix-
on, with TKE 'A' and TKE 'B' placing first
and second in the regular season. TKE 'A'
won one-pitch softball. and the Pikes cap-
tured the crow n in track and field. Winners
of events in track and field include Bill
Morgan for shotput. Mark Trezona in long
jump. Fred Heintz in the mile run and the
880 run. John Kleinhanz won both the 220
and 440 runs. Benny Askew won the 100-
yard dash. The Pike team of Dennis Ded-
zierski. Mike Lyth. Mark Dixon and Mark
Trezona captured the 880 relay, while the
KDR team of Frank Miller, John Carrig,
Fred Heintz and Steve DiTullio won the
Only four events rema this year, and they
are tennis singles, horseshoes, golf singles
and weightlifting. Soccer is in progress, and
it appears that the TKEs will amass enough
points in it to outdistance the Sigs and
Studs for the All-University Trophy. Tim
Eberlein of the Studs holds a slim lead over
both Rick Eaton of the Studs and Randy
Jones of the Sigs in the race for All-Univer-
sity Athlete of the Year.
Some of women's champions were the
AGDs for football, Third West Flyers for
basketball, Mini-Buds for volleyball, Kim
Dunlap for Ping-Pong singles, Kathy De-
Fazio and Andrea Midano for Ping-Pong
doubles, and Trisha Palchalk in badminton.

Robert C Hammer
Perhaps the one thing that people re-
member most about Bob Hammer is his
smile. He gave it freely in his years here at
Gannon; laughing, joking, or politely ask-
ing a co-worker or work-study student to
please have a particular mailing prepared
on time. His smile is just one of the many
things we remember about Bob. And one of
the reasons he won't be forgotten,

Robert C. Hammer,
Director of Operations
at (iannon and '49 gra-
duate of Gannon Uni-
versity, passed away on
October 15, 1980 at
the age of 55.
Father Mai Thanh Phan
Our true home is in heaven, and Jesus
Chrisi whose return we long for. will come
from heaven to save us.
Father Mai Thanh Phan (John Baptist
Mai). 44, professor of theology at Gannon
University, passed away on Dec. 5, 1980.
Fr. Mai. a native of North Vietnam,
joined the faculty of Gannon in 1976. In
addition to his work at the university he had
been actively engaged in working with Viet-
namese refugees who resettled in the Erie
and Buffalo areas and also assisted on
weekends at St. Agatha Parish, Meadville.
He died suddenly on Friday evening after
suffering a massive heart attack while visit-
ing a Vietnamese family in Erie.
Fr. Mai was born in North Vietnam in
1936 and escaped from there in 1954. He
studied at the Sorbonne University in Paris
and then enrolled at the Propaganda Fide
College. Rome, where he earned Ph. L. de-
gree in 1957 and an S.T.D. degree in 1963.
Ordained to the priesthood in Rome in
1962. he first came to Erie in 1964 as an
undergraduate student in mathematics at
Gannon College. Completing his studies
here, he then studied at Fordham Universi-
t>. New York City, where he earned an
additional masters degree.
Returning to Vietnam as a professor at
the University of Hue, South Vietnam, he
also taught at the University of Danang.
He was forced to flee South Vietnam in
1975. Indoing so, he led a group of refugees
in a small boat across the China Sea. The
group was stranded in the boat for over a
week and were attacked by modern-day pi-
rates during their escape. When the group
finally arrived in Guam, it was in the midst
of a typhoon with winds of up to 250 mph.
Fr. Mai was creditied with having led the
refugees through that storm to safety.
When the group was safely settled in
Guam, he undertook leadership of over
1,000 Vietnamese refugees and attempted
to find them employment and job training.
Once the resettling efforts in Guam were
completed, Fr. Mai arrived in Erie to assist
with refugees in this area and to teach the-
ology at Gannon.
In March 1979 he was cited by the Na-
tional Conference of Bishops for his "out-
standing work in resettling refugees follow-
ing the fall of Saigon."
That award, signed by Bishop Thomas
Kelley of the bishops' conference and Arch-
bishop John Quinn, president of the US.
bishops, said in part:
"In gratitude to Fr. Phan Thanh Mai
whose humanitarian efforts and selfless
dedication in assisting and caring for refu-
gees have demonstrated a commitment to
the highest human values while promoting
a new life, hope and opportunity for South-
east Asian refugees."
"He was one of the most gentle persons
and one of the finest priests I have ever
know," said Monsignor Nash. "His great-
est joy was bringing Christ to others, and
his greatest pain was not being able to do
that in his homeland."
Gannon president Dr. Joseph Scottino
said, "While his life among us was tragical-
ly short, he gave to all who have known him
the example of a Christian life that can be
of immeasurable benefit to each of us as we
plot again the direction of our lives."

A new era —
Phonathon 8 a success
Negative comments were at an all-time
low, while even the percent of refusals was
down from 51 percent last year to 46 per-
cent this year. Students reported a number
of alumni who could not contribute this
year but who had very good feelings about
Gannon and wanted to be part of its future.
"Alumni Affairs at Gannon right now"
according to Fr. Speice "is like putting a
puzzle together. All the pieces are there and
the new era is beginning to take shape."
This year's successful Phonathon and the
earlier mail campaign, the hiring of an
Alumni Affairs Director, extablishment of
the Erie and Regional Task Forces, the
emergence of renewed interest in Gannon
and its future are all healthy signs of the
budding of this "new era."

"Runaways", a contemporary musical by

as the 80-81 season opener.
In "Runaways", the typical view-point
was reversed and running away was seen
through the eyes o\~ 2M young people por-
traying runaways. The stage was set as an
inner city playground, where a group of
runaway teenagers lived, sharing their
fears, and emotions, their anger and laugh-
ter. Amid the scenery which included a 7':
fire escape, bleachers, a swingset, graffitti,
a sliding board and a shanty, the cast per-
formed seventeen knockout musical num-
bers under the vocal direction of Mary Ann
Muller and choreographed by Kathy

musical portrayed how the imagination of
youth takes the runaways from their own
real or spiritual ghetto. The collage of
speeches and songs reflected the reasons be-
hind running away, and the play was
brightened by the ironic, satiric, often-per-
verse humor used to escape the reality of it.
Close to 100 people auditioned for the con-
temporary musical, which was presented on
October 23-26, 29-31 and November 1 and

guage. Special performances were present-
ed to largely deaf audiences with complete
translations — a first in Erie Theatre.
A triology of three one act plays, entitled
"Their Solitary Way'* were presented by
the GL Theatre on November 21 and 22.
The triology was written by 1980 Gannon
graduate. Dennis Deley, at the request of
the Gannon Theatre for the purpose of ex-
perimental one-act plays.
The theme of the three plays was death,
and through his writings, Delaney por-
trayed peoples reactions to it. "The subject
has always interested me; it is relatable to
all people, everyone goes through it, and the
feelings and reactions associated with it are
both right and wrong often at the same
time." Delaney noted.
A three-play repetory presentation hig-
lighted the spring season at Gannon's The-
atre, starting on March 12th and ending in
early April. The productions included Ste-
phen Vincent Bennet's Stories of America,
Henrick Ibsen's "A Doll's House", and
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are Dead"
b\ Tom Stoppard.
"Stories of America" was presented in
conjunction with Gannon's University Fes-
tival Celebration of the Tri-centennial of
the state of Pa. The play was directed by
A.J. Miceli and Barb Miodus and consisted
of six players performing in alternating
characters, Benet's historic works and poet-
ry. Cast members included Mary Spaeder,
Barb Shaw, Natalie Massing, Ron Seroka,
Dennis Delaney, and John Skiff.
In "A Doll's House", Nora, played by
Maribeth Muckian, deals with an awkward
problem and a search for her own identity.
Set in the Victorian era, the play included
Nora's husband, Torvald, played by Dan
Erickson, also included were Randy Mur-
zynski, Anne DeMichael, Jim Harris, Jen-
ny Capretto, and Andrea LoPicollo, The
play was directed by Alex Clemente and
"Rosencrantz and Guildenstern are

One of the many unique features of the
Gannon Theatre's Repertory presentations
was the original music which accompanied
many of the scenes in their performance of
Stephen Vincent Benet's Stories of Amer-
ica. Waterford native, Jim Skiff, composed
and recorded the score for the show, setting
the words of Benet to his own music. Jim is
the brother of John Skiff, who was one of
the players in "Stories of America."

The final word . .
This book was started last summer tak-
ing pictures at the first freshmen orienta-
tion. Now. one year later, this the last page,
is about to be completed and the last dead-
line finished and mailed. A great deal of
time, energy, and effort has gone into these
pages. Long nights of typing, cropping, and
wishing you'd never heard of this blasted
book, but it is now nearly completed. And
while we have tried to capture the past
year's people, places, and events which we
believe everyone would most like remem-
bered, we have our own memories from do-
ing this book; such as the night before the
May 10th graduation, as two graduating
seniors worked into the wee hours of the
morn' to complete a deadline, or the year-
book parties — that while slow getting
started always ended on an unpredictable,
but definite upswing.
Yet, while there have been good times,
there have also been times of questioning
whether it has been worth so many hours of
work. This fall when the books are passed
out — will they or the time spent producing
them be appreciated? Probably not. But it
is somewhat reassuring though, to think
that 10 years from now as we reminisce
about "our good ol' college days" — we
have but to pick up an '81 LANCE. For
within a mere 200 pages are captured an
entire year's worth of Gannon life. Possibly
then, this book and its staff will be appreci-
ated. But now, as has been the custom, nei-
ther the administration, the faculty, nor the
student body will appreciate this book. It is
not perfect, little in life is, but it is some-
thing which I, and my staff are quite proud
of. It is an expression of our feelings to-
wards Gannon and how we would best like
to remember the past year.
Thus hopefully, with this LANCE, possi-
bly the customary, apathetic attitude sur-
rounding past Gannon yearbooks will end
and a new attitude shall prevail. One of new
found interest among the Gannon commu-
nity to contribute to the '82 LANCE in
making it even bigger and better — one
which we can all be proud!
For the graduating seniors who must now
say good-bye — both to Gannon and to
friends — I hope this LANCE holds the
fondest memories of your last year at Gan-
